April Roe Buck
- Monday, 11 April 2016
“Overall numbers of Roe Buck culled in the first three weeks of April far outstrip those coming from other months, of what is, after all, a long season.
The records illustrate that the fall off in numbers can be quite startling, slowing through May and June, with a bit of a pickup in the rut, then reducing as summer fades and autumn approaches”. IainWatson
With the Roe Buck season now under way we thought we’d take a moment to remind you of this article penned by Iain Watson two years ago which looks at when to Shoot your Trophy Roe Buck, and encourages you to hold off until later in the year.
If you have not already read it, it is an article that is well worth a read. To read the article in full please follow this link: when-to-shoot-that-trophy-roe-buck
Of course Roe Buck are native to the UK and are one of our countryside’s most cherished resources. Proper management of this delightful species should be a top priority. With that in mind in the following article I consider: which-roe-buck-should-you-cull-in-april
If and when you do decide to shoot your Roe Buck you are more than likely going to want to get it measured. In the following article, posted by myself in March 2013, I look at ‘How to Measure a Trophy’, if you'd like to swat up then here's the link: how-to-measure-a-trophy
Before you can get it measured, you’ll want to know how to cut it! And here’s how: how-where-to-cut-your-trophy
However you choose to manage this species, or whenever you choose to book your stalking, it’s well worth putting some thought into the timing.
Finally may I wish you the very best of luck with the coming season.
